I am not Father Time

"Hurry up! We've only got 10 minutes!""YOU'RE SO MEAN."This scenario plays out in my house at least three and probably closer to 17 times a day.While I appreciate the unadulterated power the girls have bestowed upon me, the assumption that the sun rises and sets at my command, I simply do not have control over how fast the Earth spins on its axis--believe me, kids, I wish I did....more

How Much Time Do You Spend on Social Media?

Mediabistro recently had an article breaking down how much time people in various age demographics spend on social media sites. I was pleased with their base list of sites, mostly because even poor little Ello made the list. (You're so cutting edge, Mediabistro.)
